Has not prevailed since scoring at Pontefract (1m2f) back in July 2018. Although his form has been largely disappointing this year, he did run well last time out at Beverley (1m2f) as he was third of 11. Has to be respected from this latest mark.
Is a maiden after seven starts. He produced his best run to date last time over this C&D when he was second of 11 runners. Remains off the same mark here. Worth consideration on his return to this track.
Finished second on a couple of occasions earlier this summer but she remains without a victory following eight appearances. She was seventh of 14 on her latest attempt at Kempton (1m3f). Needs to improve.
Broke her maiden last time over this C&D on what was her first handicap start. She held on well in the closing stages to suggest there could be more to come. Has been raised 5lb in the weights. Big player to follow up.
Broke his maiden at the ninth attempt last time at Chelmsford (1m2f) where he justified going off as the 3/1 favourite in a 5L success. Has gone up 10lb but he is worth consideration given how impressive he was on his latest run.
Has been a long way down the field on his four starts to date. He made his handicap debut at Bath (1m3½f) last time where he was 10th of 12. Stepping down in trip now and has been eased 3lb. Will wear a hood for the first time. Best to watch.
A C&D winner whose two victories have both come here. Has struggled for form this year. She was seventh of 10 on her latest attempt at this track (1m4f). Down in distance here and will wear blinkers for the first time. Others appeal more.
Prevailed over this C&D on his penultimate start where he just held on by a head in a close finish. He was unable to follow that up last time as he had to settle for fourth place of 14 at Kempton (1m). Back up in trip. One to consider.
His sole success came at this course on just his second start over 7f. He has hit the frame on a number of occasions this year, including last time over this C&D when he was third of 12. Remains off the same mark. Has each-way claims.
Has not shown many signs that his opening success is close in his seven starts to date. He had just one horse behind him on his latest effort at this course (1m4f) in a 10 runner field. Visor is on for the first time. Needs to improve.
Has been well held on her three appearances so far. Her last outing was back in December at Chelmsford (7f) where she was ninth of 13. Set for her handicap debut here and is stepping up in trip. Keep an eye out for any market support.
